This nail art was created because of the simple fact that I wanted to use Briar Rose by A-England. It seemed suitable to make flower-themed nails. Well, it didn’t really turned out looking like flowers, but I do like what it became 🙂
I started out with two layers of Briar Rose, which is actually also very pretty to wear on its own. But it had to become a nail art, not a swatch post, so I went on 😉
To make the background more interesting, I added some regular pink to the tips, using a sponge and Essence’s Free Hugs. A very pretty pink creme polish, which covers nicely. Also, it always makes me think of spring, ’cause that was when I bought this bottle 🙂
And then the flowers… The idea was to only have some of the petals visible on the tips of the naisl. I don’t know if anyone would actually recognize these as flower petals, if they weren’t informed beforehand that that’s what they’re supposed to be. But I do like how it looks. To give another hint that it’s a nature-theme, I added some green stripes. If nothing else, it at least gives some extra colour.
I kept it easier on my right hand; simply made a pattern of red and white stripes and some green dots. Al paintwork was sone with acrylic paint and a nail art brush.
